Charlotte Eriksson
“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I'm born to leave.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps

Italo Calvino
“Journeys to relive your past?' was the Khan's question at this point, a question which could also have been formulated: 'Journeys to recover your future?'
And Marco's answer was: 'Elsewhere is a negative mirror. The traveller recognizes the little that is his, discovering the much he has not had and will
never have.”
Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities

Amit Kalantri
“You need mountains, long staircases don't make good hikers.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Kamand Kojouri
“Here's another poem,
like all others before and after,
dedicated to you.
There isn't anything left to be said
but I will spend my life
trying to put you into words.
You who is every goodness,
every optimism
and hope.
Your love is a better fate for me
than anything I could wish for.
If you are a part of me,
then you’re the best part.
And if you're separate from me,
then you are my destination.
But I’ve become a weary traveller,
so please,
let us never be apart.”
Kamand Kojouri

“We will all have an end to this journey one day, some will have a great ending some will have it bad, but it’s the journey that they take that matters, in the end.”
Zakariyya Sheikh

Annie Fisher
“There is a whole generation of young people just like us wandering around Europe and the rest of the world, trying to find some meaning for why they are alive and what they should choose to do with their time. When Martha leaves and we sit in front of the fire in the living room, I look to Lily until she turns to me and I can see the grief that hides just under the surface of her expression. We are, or at least were, two of those lost souls: wanderers, backpackers, season workers, Wwoofers, Workawayers, travellers: searching the world for something or someplace to hold on to. And we have come home not because we have retired from trying to find answers and are ready to settle into adulthood, but because my death has come upon us fast and unexpected. I am not the first person of this generation of travellers- or any person who lives in this godless, superficial society- to die. But I think that it feels to Lily and to me, my mother too perhaps, that I may very well be.”
Annie Fisher, The Greater Picture

Stephen Moles
“Anubis is associated with the mummification and protection of the dead for their journeys through Denver International Airport to the afterlife. He is usually portrayed as being half human and half jackal, and holding a metal detector in his hand ... Anubis is employed by the Department of Homeland Security to examine the hearts of all travellers to make sure they have not exceeded the weight limit for psychological baggage ... He is also shown frisking mummies and confiscating firearms and other contraband. It doesn't take much to tip the scales in favour of a dead body cavity search or an afterlifetime travel ban.”
Stephen Moles, The Most Wretched Thing Imaginable or, Beneath the Burnt Umbrella

Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar
“Every place you go becomes a part of you. But none more so than home.”

“Is there anybody there?" said the Traveller,
Knocking on the moonlit door.”

“The Dominican Republic is my holy land, my Mecca.”
Raquel Cepeda, Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina

“Like a real traveller, he looks for whatever he has in common with the people he encounters, to a point where the sense of otherness very often vanishes completely.”
Mateo Cabello, Of Mountains and Men

“Engkau boleh saja membual tentang kaki telanjangmu
Yang telah menempuh jutaan mil.
Gaya kupu-kupu mu yang mengarungi laut penuh hiu,
Atau kebolehanmu memanjat tebing-tebing terjal
Dengan sepotong tali terikat di pinggangmu.

Namun jika kau tak pernah menjelajah ke dalam batinmu sendiri,
Engkau bagaikan tak pernah pergi ke mana pun.”
Desi Anwar, Romantic Journey: Notebook of a Traveller

Virginia Alison
“When you travel, the battered old suitcase only tells half the story...”
Virginia Alison

“Everyone is looking to find someplace to call home but having one can mess you up leaving you perpetually stuck.”
Karishma Magvani

Mehmet Murat ildan

“Nothing in this universe is able to complete its travel on the road of infinity! Because the road is very very long, travellers eventually get tired and turn into autumn leaves!”

“Traveler! If you keep wandering in the path of wisdom you too eventually become a man of wisdom!”

“A traveller learns more than a passenger.”
Mark Frost, Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier

Maria Angelova

Sahara Sanders
“In a couple of days after our arrival, it already became clear that our things were lost forever and would never be found. They put in the paperwork that Emirates Airlines had lost it, although we knew for sure it was all stolen by those girls in the airport of our first departure.”

“It’s a traveller, he says, it’s lost like us, a wanderer covering miles. A scavenger that lives amongst the rocks and steals to live. It’s beautiful.”
J.A. DuMairier, Shoal: A Thanet Writers Anthology

“There’s so much to explore rather to talk about religions.”
Vikash Shrivastava
